Emma Watson could retire from acting to live a normal lifeAlthough it seems that it was yesterday when Emma Watson stole our hearts with her character from Harry Potter, she already has 20 years of experience.
From 2001 to 2007, Emma Watson gave life to the character who grew up with her: Hermione Granger. Naturally, to represent a girl with such courage, she had that same attribute running through her veins.
Rather than settle for being just another actress who stands out simply for her looks, Emma has always sought to cultivate her intellect and engage with causes she truly believes in, no matter how much Hollywood offered her a promising future in the palm of her hand.
Against the tide, Emma Watson managed for years to fulfill her obligations on set without neglecting her professional career. She is a proud BA in English Literature from Brown University, New York.
With her mettle and mind, it was almost a dream for her to play Meg March in the film adaptation of “Little Women” that was released in 2019.
In the same way, only she could be perfect to embody Bella in the live action version of “Beauty and the Beast”, in which she also had the opportunity to make strategic changes in the script so as not to subject her character to sexist canons.
Emma has always fought for the equal rights of women and has dedicated herself to being an active activist advocating for gender equality.
Along this path, she met Leo Robinson, a businessman who shares Emma’s interest in defending just causes and who has also managed to win over the actress.
It is possible that the love between the two is so great, that it has become a powerful reason for Emma to stay away from acting for now. Although nothing is written, for now it will not be linked to new film projects due to the sanitary conditions that are experienced. Will it be a momentary or final goodbye to the seventh art?
